2016 Holzapfel Zweigelt Rosé Wachau (Dry)

SKU #1320314

Importer's Notes: "Berries, berries, berries. Strawberries, raspberries, and even a hint of cranberry which gives this dry rosé an edge. That, and the lovely minerality one comes to expect from this very special region Wachau region of Austria. Hopped up on terraced vineyards along the Danube, these Zweigelt grapes dig in their roots and pull up those lovely hints of slate and stone. Zweigelt is very rare for this region; it is primarily planted (and known for) its Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. But winemaker Karl Holzapfel knows a good thing when he sees it."

Delicious, dry, crunchy rose of Zweigelt. Lots of juicy, tart forest berries, bramble leaf, alpine strawberry and orange peel. So quaffable and refreshing. One of my favorites this summer.
Top Value!

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
